Midcentury modern ranch by Cliff May asks $920K in Long Beach

Posted · Add Comment

This lovely Long Beach home sits in the Rancho Estates neighborhood on the eastern side of the city, a community planned out in the 1950s by prolific modern designer Cliff May.

With 1,950 square feet of living space, the four-bedroom home is also one of the larger residences that May designed in the area. Inside, it’s got vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and skylights, clerestory windows, walls of glass, and easy indoor-outdoor access—a hallmark of May’s design style.

The house was built in 1954 and has been updated with contemporary appliances, remodeled bathrooms, and new cabinetry. Original doors and a brick fireplace in the living room remain.

Sitting on a 5,810-square-foot lot, the house has an attached two-car garage and opens to a neatly manicured backyard with a grassy patch of lawn, a fire pit, and multiple patios. Alongside the home is a shady sitting area and a hot tub.

Asking price is $920,000.
